A fantastic experience... incredibly valuable

It's been incredibly valuable. There's an intimacy and self-reflection that I haven't got from any other programme I've been in.

Scott Puopolo

CEO, Telestream

Strategic challenge

I don't think I'd get anything like the same level of pushback or challenge elsewhere. I'd recommend Richard to anyone who wants to focus on the bigger issues.

Robert Bailkoski

Group CEO, Logicalis

Produces exponential impact

I've a much clearer picture on my strategy, my goals, and my own inner game. I'd recommend Xquadrant to senior execs who want to make 10X impact.

David Engel

CEO, Drake & Farrell

An unbelievable gathering

Thanks to the methodology and Richard's creativity, I've gone deep on myself and my business, and our team has really come together. Recommended for any CEO who wants to become a better leader.

Quickly adds value

Richard is a true trusted advisor who quickly adds value at a personal and team level. It's another league compared with programmes I've experienced before.
